Rotterdam Adopts Legislation To Control Marijuana Dispensaries And Then Use!

Every city, town, and county in the state has until December 31 to decide whether or not to legalize marijuana companies. On the other hand, the Rotterdam Town Council decided to opt in on Wednesday night so that the city might reap the potential tax income gains.

Melvin Mintz is one of the worried locals who think the issue should have been put to a vote on the ballot so that more people could have had a say in the final decision. He argued that the decision should be left to the public. If you want to know more about it, though, they need to hear all the arguments for and against it.

Those who argued for opting in brought up the issue of accessibility to the council. At the public hearing, one Rotterdam citizen argued, “We need dispensaries here in Rotterdam.” “I’m not saying put it where the kids are but don’t put it so far away from people who want it,” he said.

“Whether it’s recreational or (sorry, I told you the last time I use it for medical reasons)… need to acquire it.” Before the vote, Councilman Evan Christou said that the city intends to form a committee to oversee the permitting, zoning, and application procedures for dispensaries.

Repeatedly, he emphasized that the ideas were still in development. And if we find something, we may revise our plans until we’re giving our residents the very best service possible. Glenville and Niskayuna, two nearby towns, have chosen not to allow marijuana sales. When they finally do, dispensaries in Rotterdam can be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
